Having an incredibly morbid fascination with the trains – I’ve always wanted a train simulator. Unfortunately, there were none that would work on linux. And that’s when I stumbled over OpenBve. The software is amazing – has a good game engine, and lots of maps and trains – not to mention the fact that it’s pretty realistic and detailed.
The game is written in C# and requires mono [ and some other dependencies, which they have listed here]. I’ve had a good time playing it. And I wish someone would design routes for India 😦
